We will definitely be back. We stayed in room 10, which is one of the 2 rooms that has airconditioning. This room is right next to the kitchen, so it tends to be a little noisy with pots and pans in the AM. We knew this before hand, but wanted the airconditioning. My husband gets up before dawn (5:30 AM) and I wear earplugs, so it was not a problem for us. Everyone at the hotel was great! Thanks, Roberto, David, Fredrick, Kristiam and FranKlin for a great vacation. We ate most of our meals at the hotel, the quality and price was as good or better than what was in town. The tour company Gecko Trails has an office right at Banana Azul and they arranged a day trip to Boca del Toro Panama for us. What a great tour!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Banana Azul hotel is a small and simple hotel north of town on Playa Negra. The small boutique hotel has been created with care using local products and a philosophy that emphasizes relaxation. We cater to adults, 16 years and over. Blooming gardens adorn the property, as does several freely-hanging hammocks, providing the perfect spot for afternoon napping or leisurely reading. A meandering pond inhabited by fish and turtles flows through portions of the property adding a lighter element to the ongoing natural soundtrack of waves crashing against the shoreline. The hotel consists of 22 beautiful guest rooms with private baths, fans (some with A/C), and free WiFi. Most rooms are on the second floor of the main building, and open onto a large veranda with sweeping ocean views and of the garden. Banana Azul offers its guests a quaint restaurant that serves a complimentary filling breakfast, variety of lunch options and refreshing drinks throughout the day and a relaxing three entre dinner option in a romantic atmosphere at night. Caribe Fun Tours is on site to assist with tours and transportation needs and can assist with a variety of package options including visits to the Arenal Volcano, canopy tours, snorkeling trips, and even rafting excursions. ... more less
